I almost always get my workout on during Brooke’s first nap of the day because I am a morning exerciser but today my run didn’t happen until noonish. After her bath she fell asleep in my arms and I was FORCED to sit on the couch and eat out of a bag of cereal that was next to me and stare at her while she slept. There was no way I was putting this girl down.
After she woke up we played around for a while, ate and during her next nap I hopped on the treadmill.
Picture from yesterday… I think that my gym really needs to invest in a little something called air conditioning. In the long run it will save them millions of dollars because then I wouldn’t be breaking everything in there by sweating a bucket right onto their cardio machines.
Today I ran until Brooke woke up which turned out to be 10 miles at an 8:15 average pace. It is kind of fun not having a training plan and never knowing what my run will be and letting Brooke decide the distance…. PS I think I may have found a Thanksgiving race to start training for hence the motivation to run today.
Time for some wonderful tangents:
Billy and I were twiners on Saturday night and I was so excited about it I had to take a picture of it and show you guys because I know you all share the same love of twinning (just because I used to be a teacher doesn’t mean that I have to use real words) someone that I do.
A few of you told me to try TJ’s FMW. I was reluctant. I was nervous. I put off doing it until I was emotionally stable. You guys were right, they are incredible and this flavor tastes like FMW dipped straight into maple syrup. Since I am a FMW expert I do like that the regular brand of FMW absorbs more milk into each mini wheat, these ones are more dense which does not allow for the same milk absorption. Overall, they have won first place in my heart.
I found this on our counter? Billy explained it to me and was beyond excited about his new little butter crockpot.
Since these 3 little ones have been such a huge part of my life I cannot stop posting pictures of them on the blog. I have to give you a little update every now and then to remind you how cute they are.
For lunch I had the best salad I have ever made. Tilapia, romaine, cabbage, steamed carrots and zucchini and 1/2 a cup of guac. The pb and j pita was pretty darn good too.
I torture myself by looking at the lululemon website. Everything is beautiful but law school sucks all of our money even though I NEED to spend $200 on a new running outfit for when I run on my porch treadmill and the only person that can see me is Brooke.
I found my favorite SOYJOY bar flavor and decided to take a picture of it on a baby stomach. Brooke is always grabbing for my food.
I am still watching Friday Night Lights when I feed Brooke during the night. Nothing like getting emotionally invested in a bunch of high-schoolers football careers at 3 in the morning and secretly hoping that Brooke wakes up a few more times during the night so that I can watch more. I just started season three and I am experiencing anxiety just knowing I don’t have that many seasons left.
Is there a show that you are or have been emotionally invested in to the point where you feel like they are your real life friends with the characters?
Tell me about some tangents from your day!!!
When do you plan out your daily run? According to your training plan? RIght before you walk out the door to go run? Do you plan them weekly? Run until you have to stop for work/school/kids?
